Course closed

Following on from the Prime Minister’s statement tonight (23 March), golf clubs and golf courses in England must now close.

It is England Golf’s position that this deeply regrettable, but highly necessary and responsible course of action must be implemented with immediate effect and be maintained until further notice.

The government has identified an urgent need to introduce new restrictions on public life and on non-essential businesses opening their doors.

This has been done to limit the spread of the coronavirus and relieve the growing pressure on our National Health Service.

Keeping golf courses open is simply no longer compatible with the updated policy of government which is designed to save lives in a time of national emergency. 

The health and wellbeing of the nation is the only consideration that matters at this moment in our history.

These are incredibly testing times for the country. The golf industry cannot be shielded from the economic and social ramifications caused by this temporary shutdown of normal life.

We would like to assure the golfing community that England Golf staff will continue to work remotely with all affiliated golfers, clubs and counties to try and minimise the damage caused by this suspension of regular golf club life.

We will continue to signpost clubs and counties to the latest government advice and schemes designed to help the economy cope with the disruption caused by coronavirus.

Corona Virus Update

In response to the government’s announcement, we will be closing our Clubhouse facility from Thursday 19th March 2020.

We will be cancelling ALL Competive golf from our Fixture List for the foreseeable future. This includes Welcome Captain competitions, Friendly and Open Fixtures and Captains Trips.

Our priority is to protect our staff, members and visitors but our mental health is important too. Therefore we are intending to keep the GOLF COURSE OPEN.

This, of course, may change as the Government make future announcements.

The front door of the clubhouse will be open for access to the entrance hall only, for collection of score cards, ‘signing in’ etc.

The Locker Room facilities will be locked from Monday 23rd March onwards. We therefore are advising that members take all their equipment home.

The Gents outside toilet facility will change to Gents/Ladies Toilets so we ask that you take this into consideration when using the conveniences.

Golf is unique as it requires no person to person contact. The clubhouse will be closed, so change in the car park, take reasonable precautions and play golf! The loss of all recreational activity, social discussions, and time spent walking in fresh air could have serious long term effects on the physical health and mental wellbeing of golfers. #keepplayinggolf

· We are recommending that you do not gather in large groups.
· Take all your equipment home.
· Do not remove the flagstick, whilst playing but if you do remove it, consider using your gloved hand.
· Do not share range finding equipment, particularly that which requires putting it to your eye.
· Keep your distance from your playing partners.
· Do not shake hands at the conclusion of your game.
· After play, ensure that you wash your hands as advised by Public Health England.

We will continue to keep you informed, via the Club Website, social media and email. We are facing unprecedented challenges and the financial implications are serious for us all. Our hope is that we can ALL get through this and return to some sort of normality at the earliest opportunity.

Away from golf, it is vital that everyone continues to follow best practice when it comes to dealing with the current outbreak of coronavirus.
